Still life of an empty bottle, I like the way the light make an abstract of lines running through the bottle, I didn't have much time to shot this, but I did try to move it, that didn't work out well, the depth was lost on the lines.
Sticking with the "blue" theme, I have found that the monochrome tone lets light in or emphasizes the light a bit more than color. Maybe it's the detraction of color?? The blue seems to add a "softness" I don't see in my other toned monochromes. Again, maybe the color,affecting the light and focus?
This experiment is really helping me focus on my photography and helping develop what kind of photographer I want to be, It's helping me understand what I'm good at, and what I'm not so good at, Where I need to improve or if it's better just to give up. So far I haven't given up on a challenge. I keep trying, cause it fun!
I think this would qualify as "Miksang" photography?
Miksang is a Tibetan word meaning "good eye." It represents a form of contemplative photography based on the Dharma Art teachings of Chögyam Trungpa, in which the eye is in synchronization with the contemplative mind. The result of this particular perception of the world, combined with photography, produces a peculiar and open way of seeing the world. Miksang pictures tend to[who?] bring the observer back into the original contemplation state of the author of the picture. The pictures can bring one back to a purer perception of reality that is often neglected. Miksang involves nothing fancy, no special setup; only a visual capture, in the proper state of mind, of everyday's reality. ~Wikipedia
Release your inhibitions
Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten
